A collection of flora from the pacific wonderland.

False Bugbane (Trautvetteria caroliniensis)

Northern Loop Trail, Mt. Rainier N.P., WA, 8/2011

The flowers of this plant have no petals, only stamens.  Distinguishable from true bugbane by its maple-shaped leaves.

  1. This native wildflower is new to me. At first I thought it might be related to Eupatorium or mistflower, but now I see it’s in the buttercup family.
